3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Bar on Buena. Looks delicious, with the big creamy Irish head I was expecting. Dry chocolate comes in late but blossoms in the finish. Lightly bitter and medium bodied, itís smooth in the mouth. The chocolate flavors are sometimes like Bakerís chocolate, sometime with the slightly fruity notes of carob. Smell is slightly hoppy, with caramel and bread. Not an overly complex beer, it is tasty and quite refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A- Mocha, bitter cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark fruits, wood, roasty.
A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head.
T- Dry cocoa, bitter coffee, dark fruits, roasty.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly dry finish.
O- I love stouts, although I havenít been impressed with dry stouts until now. Started out with loads of coffee and roastiness on the nose and some dark fruits, even a bit of banana, which Iím not sure where that came from. The taste started out rich and coffee and cocoa like and faded into a very dry mouthfeel with some dark fruit after tones. Solid and enjoyed the depth of this one.

I can drink the hell out of some Old No. 38 Stout. Admittedly, my only experience with the Dry Stout style has been with Guinness and Murphys, but Iíd take this American brew over them. Old No. 38 isnít quite pitch black with a pretty but short-lasting head. Aroma has roasted malt character and some cream. Flavor reveals toasted barley, coffee, rich malt, slight cream, and a little cocoa. Old No. 38 may not be as full-bodied as some Stouts, but man is she smooth. This is a dark brew that wonít fill you up too much or dull your senses a lot with a couple. If thatís your thing, I highly recommend it.
